Cross Country practices continue over the holidays at North Burleigh in preparation for the House Cross Country on Wednesday afternoon of Week 1. We wish good luck to our Rugby boys on their tour of Canada and prepare for APS Round 1 versus Trinity in Week 1 of Term Two.
The Queensland State School Swimming Championships were held in Brisbane last week. As the South Coast Region is very strong at swimming, many of the swimmers contributed significantly to the medals won in the Regional relay events.
The Senior School Somerset swimmers who performed exceptionally were:
Ky Codd (16 years) – 7th in 100m Breaststroke, 5th in 50m Breaststroke and gold in Medley relay
Mia Collins (14 years) – silver in Freestyle relay
Leon Shirayama (17 years) – 7th in 50m Freestyle, 5th in 100m Breaststroke, bronze in 100m Butterfly, gold in Medley relay, bronze in Freestyle relay, bronze in 50m Butterfly and silver in 50m Breaststroke
Harrison Smith (17 years) – gold in 100m Breaststroke, gold in Medley relay, gold in 50m Breaststroke and silver in 200m Breaststroke
Leon Shirayama and Harrison Smith have qualified to be selected on the Queensland School Swimming Team to compete in Hobart later this year at the National Titles.
Last year, Luke and Luke won the 2017 Winter Season Inter- Club Section three competition and were promoted to Section 2 for the 2018 Summer Competition.
The Section 2 finals were played last Saturday and the two Luke's were up against the undefeated Currumbin Cougars, whom they went on to soundly defeat. The Luke's won their doubles match 6-5 (after a tie-break) and then won each of their singles matches 6-0 and 6-1 and now seek promotion again next season.
Congratulations to the following students who made the following representative squads:
• Marley and Rio Burns – Under 11 Girls Hinterland District and South Coast Netball. Have been invited to compete in the State Championships at Carrara on 16 & 17th June.
• Ruby Partridge – Under 12 Girls Hinterland District Basketball Junior Netball Skills (Year 4 to 6) Occur every Wednesday from 7:15-8:15 a.m. on the Outside Ray Netball Courts. It is great to see the numbers at these sessions increasing every week! This will re-commence back in Week 2 Term Two.
A reminder that Junior School Class Swimming Lessons for Prep to Year 5 are compulsory for all students all throughout the year. If a child is unable to swim for any reason, they must bring a note from home and pass it onto to the classroom teacher or swimming instructor.
The College has a wonderful swimming pool facility which offers a year-round swimming environment. We would love for each and every student in the Junior School would relish and enjoy the opportunity to learn basic water survival skills needed to keep themselves safe in the water and utilise the quality precinct.
All policies and procedures are outlined in the Senior School Sport page of Schoolbox, under “Sport Policy and Dates”. All students and parents are encouraged to familiarise themselves with these.
Please note, practices are compulsory for both Winter and Summer Seasons.
